RAFFL is teaming up with NOFA-VT to host a Beginning Farmer Workshop Series in the Rutland Region this summer! Our goal is to hold a number of on-farm workshops to address new farmer training needs and build a learning community between beginning farmers, farm interns, and apprentices in the Rutland Region.
A few weeks ago you all suggested some great ideas on farm skills you needed to learn. Now, we need your help prioritizing these training topics, figuring the best time to hold the workshops, and identifying host farms! If you aren’t ready to host a workshop yourself, but know a farmer who is really good at one of the workshop topic areas, just email me with your suggestions for potential hosts.
Thanks so much for your input (if you already filled out the survey through the link we sent out by email, no need to complete it again).
Thank you for helping us build programs that matter to you and the vitality of our farming community!
